    Where I go wrong at dancing is I try to move a part of my body for every element of the rhythm of the song. I don't just mean the pulse of the song, but I mean also the hi hat (typically eighth notes, sometimes even sixteenth) and any syncopations. It seems like if you're not moving your body for every element of the rhythm, you're not really dancing *to* the music but rather just moving your body around in space.

    I kind of hate it when I hear people say they like a song because it has a "good beat". They really mean, "good rhythm".

    i can't get over how funny the idea of some guy botching an execution is. will it go into his performance review?


    "well, sir, there was that one incident a few months ago when you botched something. what was it? oh, yeah, says right here, it was an execution"

    This was a big deal back in the day when they used swords and axes to behead people. The best executioners actually had to travel all over the country because they were so in demand.

    It is funny with some coworkers we were discussing the lethal injection and how it doesn't always go as planned and BOOM. It happened again. I just can't believe how it is so difficult to inject somebody with something and have them die. Almost anything will kill somebody if injected with enough of it. Of course, they want to do it humanely, but think about it this kind of thing never happens with putting down pets. Also, there are so many different anesthesia drugs that can pretty much kill you instantly if given even a little bit too much. Why is this so difficult?

    Wasn't there something a while back where the distribution contracts on the drugs forbid their use for killing people. All of the doctors at the foreign drug companies must subscribe to the Hippocratic oath and didn't want their shit being used to do harm.

    So they threatened to stop distributing to the US (including hospitals and places that actually need the anesthesia drugs) if they continued to use them to execute people.

    I was going to say..."you'd think someone would step in and try to capture that market" but from the looks of this news, someone did try to capture that market...and they sucked at it.

    Yeah, this was a story last fall I think. The prisons had to find circuitous (read: maybe not legal) ways to obtain the drugs.

    "Jack Lawson, a scientist with Canada's Department of Fisheries and Oceans, said a whale explosion is unlikely. He's more worried someone could fall inside the decomposing beast.
    "The (whale) skin is starting to lose its integrity and if someone were to walk along, say, the chin -- that is full of all that gas -- they could fall in the whale. The insides will be liquefied. Retrieving them would be very difficult," Lawson, told the National Post."

    i feel like Jack is trolling CNN.
